National Horror Host Svengoolie has been doing a whirlwind tour of summer appearances which included at stop at The Little Boots Rodeo in Elk Grove Village! I was attending Monsterbash that weekend and asked our dear friend, Jamie Lee Cortese, to cover this event with the same amazing detail she did for us last year (relive that great experience by clicking HERE). I did end up making it to his appearance that Sunday after all but, as I was fatigued from travel and the blistering heat, would be far less effective at handling this event like Jamie can. She attended both days with her amazing family and I can’t wait to hear the full story coming soon!

As we Daves encourage all Svengoolie and Horror Host fans to share there photos with us, we were VERY happy that Jerry Victory from the Svengoolie YAHOO forum decided to take us to task. Below are his shots taken at the event on Saturday June ….

And speaking of our friend, Jerry, stay tuned for a special post coming soon showing what happened when he called radio host, Stephanie Miller, and asked her guest Cassandra Peterson a.k.a. Elvira: Mistress of the Dark about Sven….


  1. I live in Florida, and we’re having our usual summer heat (after tropical storm Debby dumped huge amounts of rain on us last week), but I don’t think it’s nearly as bad as some other areas of the country are experiencing.

    I can’t help but feel sorry for Sven having to wear that get-up at all the events he attends, both indoors and out. They really ought to come up with a cooler lightweight summer outfit for him – or something that carries its own cooling unit with it – maybe have NASA develop it. Surely his fans would understand. We all want Sven to take good care of himself. Maybe if he attended these summer events dressed in a T-shirt and shorts, he could call himself SvenCoolie…
